Buttenshaw Farm is based on organic and permaculture principles with the hope of encouraging all beneficial insects and everything working in harmony. Thanks to interspersed flower plantings, native bees (including blue banded bees), European honey bees and butterflies are residents of the garden. The household seeks to reduce their environmental impact by embracing nature, reducing waste and utilising scraps in the garden system.

The productive part of the garden features fruit and nut trees, heirloom vegetables and chickens. What isn't eaten right away is preserved to be consumed over the winter months.

Risks:  Be aware of three ponds and a natural creek on the property – accessible via bridge. Visitors should be advised that parts of the garden are heavily sloped.
